Proverb for Today

Keep five yards from a carriage,
ten yards from a horse, and
a hundred yards from an elephant;
but the distance one should keep from a wicked man cannot be measured.

A wise and interesting proverb, indeed.

Jefus said...

look, look, look,..... even Red Indians got it right,.....

We were taught to believe that the Great Spirit sees and hears everything, and that he never forgets, that hereafter he will give every man a spirit home according to his deserts; If he has been a good man, he will have a good home; if he has been a bad man, he will have a bad home. This I believe, and all my people believe the same.

I am tired of talk that comes to nothing It makes my heart sick when I remember all the good words and all the broken promises. There has been too much talking by men who had no right to talk.
It does not require many words to speak the truth.

If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace. Treat all men alike.Give them all the same law.Give them all an even chance to live and grow.All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers.


the rest of it here
